  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Darren Silverman (Biggs), Wayne Lefessier (Zahn), and J.D. McNugent (Black) have been best friends since grammar school. They look out for eachother...and they all really love Neil Diamond. One evening, after performing in their tribute band, Diamonds In The Rough, gullible Darren meets Judith (Peet), a hard-hearted, really mean girl who totally controls his life

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits good quality throughout. Images are sharp and detailed with nicely rendered depth and definition. Contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced. Colors are rich, with accurate fleshtones, vibrant hues and deep blacks. At times, colors can seem slightly smeared and wanting in clarity. There is a bit of edge enhancement noticed on occasion, but many scenes are free from its distraction. (Suzanne Hodges)
